A GENEROUS donation to the Stapenhill Scouts has allowed them to continue their weekly activities.

The money was desperately needed to maintain their scout hut which was suffering from various problems including the building’s plumbing.

Councillor Bernard Peters, who represents Brizlincote for East Staffordshire Borough Council, happily handed the cheque for £188 to the scouts in February, and the work has now been completed.

Councillor Peters said: “It’s a wonderful organisation that offers a great service to boys and girls.

“I was more than happy to give them the money to maintain their scout hut and i know the money was gratefully received.

“I hope i can be of further assistance to them as the years go on.”

    Factually at the age of 14 Scouts become Explorers (14-18) which is the next tier of the Scout Associations 6-25 setup which has been running for more than 10 years. Young Leaders which is mentioned in this article is a program ran within Explorers. This develops the skills which they have into becoming a successful young leader and then on adult leader. Also at the age of 18 they join Network (18-25) which is the top tier of scouting. Here they can take out a full Adult appointmnet or just partake in social events and activities suited to the age range.
